Paint for inside of new coop ?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

What is the latest ideas on white paint for inside of a new coop? I have read Kilz but thought that was primer? 

Also plan to paint coop and run Barn Red with white trim, so hoping the white I use can be the white for everything.. 

Thanks in advance for any advice and ideas you could share.

I primed with Kilz, 2 coats actually and then finished with a top coat of exterior semi gloss white. I used the same exterior semi gloss white for the outside. Makes the interior very bight and should aid in cleaning.

I just stopped by my local Sherwin Williams and they sold me some of their top quality($40 a gallon regular price) paint for $5 a gallon.

They had some that was mis tinted. I got some light yellow for the interior of the coop.

Then they sold me some other good paint(regular price $20 or $25 a gallon) though not their best stuff that they wanted rid of for $5 a gallon I picked the color. So I matched the color of my house as best I could from memory. This is for the exterior and both paints were exterior grade.

I just built my coop and was already over my planned budget.

So this cheap paint helped the pocket book.

Just an option for you. Check your local paint store for a mis tinted paint or some other discounted paint.

Of course if you have the budget get what you want this just worked for me.

I had originally stopped at Home Depot and they couldn't do better than $20 and that was for cheap quality paint. Their service seemed less than stellar also.

Then I remembered reading on here where someone recommended checking for discounted paint to save on costs.

It worked out well I guess and the service at the other store was so much better also.

I just painted ours with an exterior latex paint plus primer. Then I used garage/deck paint for the floor. After all my research those seemed the best options.
